Valentino menswear redefines its roots. This season, the Maison will break from its co-ed setup of the last three years, unveiling Valentino The Narratives Menswear show, that will take place on June 16th 2023, at 2.00pm, at the Università degli Studi di Milano Statale in the city of Milan. The Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli continues its support of local communities and new generations, nurturing artistic talents and creating cultural learning opportunities with institutions and universities.

The choice to show on the opening day of Milano Fashion Week, in a time when the University is alive and swarms with students, is an invitation for students to experience the show live at the Statale di Milano. For the Maison, Milan holds both the key to history and the roadmap to innovation. Buzzing with underground energy and of-the-moment art and cultural movements, it is in this city that Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli will resignify the codes of menswear, but not without looking to the past. It was in Milan, after all, in January 1985, that Mr. Valentino Garavani staged his very first menswear show.

Valentino menswear’s increasing importance has been building over the seasons. Recently, the House launched Maison Valentino Essentials, a selection of unmissable menswear staples that reconsider traditional rules and limitations, pushing menswear into something even more open and free. The Valentino The Narratives Menswear show will be presented as part of Milan Fashion Week, and will be streamed live on and through the Maison’s social channels. Showing in Milan, opening the official calendar of Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, continues to underline the importance of being part of a fashion system.
